KOB interviews Joshua Kastenberg: Business leaders react to Supreme Court blocking vaccine mandate
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — In a 6-3 vote, the U.S. Supreme Court blocked the Biden administration from enforcing its sweeping vaccine-or-test requirements for large private companies.
--- EXCERPT ---
KOB 4 legal analyst Josh Kastenberg spoke about what this decision means moving forward.
"This one is a significant restriction on presidential authority and in my mind open the door for further restrictions on presidential authority by this very court," Kastenberg said.
However, he said the decision does not mean that states and cities cannot implement their own vaccine mandates like what we’ve seen in New Mexico.
"The other thing this decision does not stop is the states from trying to create similar programs,” Kastenberg said. “This is purely focused on the federal government."
